Celebrating Independence Day with the Spicy Watermelon Spritz

Independence Day is right around the corner, and we plan on celebrating our country’s birthday with the Spicy Watermelon Spritz!

Juicy watermelon gets muddled with fresh lime juice and tequila and is topped off with effervescent Boylan Heritage Club in this 4th of July cocktail. A spicy chile-salt rim gives this summer spritz just that right amount of zing. Whether your heading to a backyard barbecue, a sandy beach, or a rooftop fireworks viewing, you’ll want to have this drink in hand. We think it’s best consumed while sporting American flag shorts, because shorts with stars and stripes make everything taste better, right?  Happy birthday ‘MURICA!
